As a university chaplain at a non-sectarian school, I work with students who come from a variety of faith backgrounds.  The growing majority is those who are religiously unaffiliated or who consider themselves "spiritual but not religious".  But I find that even among our students who grew up in church and still consider themselves faithful Christians, many have little knowledge of what is actually in the Bible and have little desire to read it to find out.  That's just one reason a book like this is helpful.  In a fun, interesting, and user-friendly way, the multiple authors share perspectives on the good book that we may have missed in church.  Their accounts of wrestling with the text in deep and playful ways reveals why scripture is still powerful and relevant for us today.  I highly recommend this book to anyone...from those who think they know the Bible to those who didn't realize they could be interested in it.

Disquiet Time allows us to be up front about our feelings, upsets and inspiration from the Bible.  These are open discussions by concerned and learned people that call on all of us to check our premises and beliefs about The Good Book.

This book made me look at passages in the Bible in new and interesting ways. I've been hearing and reading the Bible my whole life, and I've loved reading these new perspectives - they are giving me a lot to think about.

When we learn to love mystery, we don't fear doubt. This group of writers seems to get that and aren't afraid to put out their questions, criticisms and how they overcame them (or not) to find authentic belief.

Each chapter seems to outshine the one before it. So many different views, but all heartfelt and all with smart insight. This is a remarkable book.

Fabulous! Written in everyday language that we really use. No God talk. Just honest living and learning.

This collection of essays challenges the reader to think in ways that are not traditionally encouraged within the confines of mainline Christianity. Read if you want to accept this challenge!
